DateSaturday 23rd March 2019 to Sunday 24th March 2019
DescriptionLearn how to write a compelling and gripping crime novel that will attract interest from agents and editors in the commercial fiction market. Do you want to write - and sell - a crime novel? This workshop will teach you the key skills you need, including: - Choosing a marketable idea that fits the genre - Developing a compelling lead character (perhaps with the potential to carry a series) - Structuring a strong plot full of twists and turns - Creating gripping and suspenseful prose that will hook your reader from the start - How to find motivation and finish your novel - How to get published What will you do on the course? The weekend masterclass will consist of a mixture of lecture and seminar work on key skills, insight into the crime fiction market, guided writing exercises to develop technique such as building suspense, characterisation, dialogue, and more. Ideally, participants should have some familiarity with the UK crime fiction market. It would be helpful to have read several crime novels that have been published in 2018. Who is it for? This masterclass is aimed at writers who already have some understanding of the crime fiction genre and have perhaps already embarked on writing a crime novel and want some guidance and encouragement.
